About the Natural Areas Conservancy & Their Paid Field Research Internships

Since its founding in 2012, the Natural Areas Conservancy (NAC) has been seeking new ways to protect, restore, and improve nature in NYC. Through their college and graduate school internship program for CUNY students, they are working to train the next generation of urban ecology professionals.

Each summer, the NAC staff trains interns in field research methods in NYC’s natural areas. Since 2016, they have trained over 60 interns. During the summer, interns collect and manage ecological data, meet professional contacts, and develop as ecologists, researchers, and science communicators.

This program is supported by the Leon Levy Foundation and Jerome Levy Foundation, the Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks Conservancy, Lise Strickler, and an anonymous donor.
